One less High School Book for you to read


You can skip this one.  The premise of the story has promise, but the only thing that kept me reading was wanting to see the mystery solved.  The writing is mediocre, the high school set-up and entire character ensemble read as one giant clichéBut to Barnes' credit: it is a huge accomplishment she completed this manuscript and had it published at such a young age (19!), and I really appreciate that choices relating to sensuality, violence and language were all appropriate for young adult audiences.  For that, I tip my digital hat.  Sorry I didn't enjoy your book.
